the election, and four days after the tape came out in 2004, george w. bush went on to beat john kerry in the presidential election that year by less than three points. there is, thankfully, no chance of osama bin laden releasing a videotape this year, because he is dead as a door nail. but we did have an october surprise of a different sort this year. with this giant devastating storm hitting the most densely populated part of the united states. and it really is almost no precedent in american politics for something this large happening outside the political sphere, something this large happening this close to when we vote in an election that is this close. there are only a couple of other instances in our history when anything like this has happened. lots of people, of course, are asking how this disaster on the east coast could affect our election. honestly, the answer is we do not know. there is not enough relevant historical precedent to study in order to come up with a historically well-informed answer to that question. the sample size is just too small. we cannot say at this poi
katrina tainted george bush's presidency. then isaac wiped out the first day of the republican national convention. now hurricane sandy. sandy, what kind of name is that? are you induced or a lady storm? big surprise, just when obama needs a boost, who shows up in a gender ambiguous weather system? a category 5 bi-hurricane. don't get me wrong, i don't mind you being a meteorological event but why must be so flam poiboya and in my face about it? no, i'm hurricane sandy. deal with me. >> all right. did you see this video yesterday? a 4-year-old girl in ft. collins, colorado, if you think you're sick of the presidential election, look to her reaction after a ride to her grocery store with her mom during which she listened to an mpr report about the campaign. >> because i'm tired of both obama and mitt romney. >> that's why you're crying? oh, it will be over soon, abby. okay? the election will be over soon, okay? >> okay. >> she speaks for so many. by the way, npr offered an apology to the little girl and said "only a few more days. only a few more days." here's a picture of little abigail
to the emergency. that is what the mayor was referring to. we saw george bush saying he stayed away from the area around katrina because of that reason and bush suffered terribly for that decision but governor christie has welcomed president obama today so no one complaining about that in new jersey. >>neil: in new jersey. the rest of the state...i don't know, if obama was offering help, i would take it. thank you, byron. the president is in atlantic city with governor chris christie and he should be speaking shortly, fema officials are there and other top officials. rick, what do you see there? rick: incredible devastation in this community and many more up and down the new jersey coastline this is one of hundreds of homes that was damaged, some of them destroyed. you can see in this guy's front door and see the pool table covered with several feet of ground. >>neil: i will come back do you, but, now, with the president. >> we are surveying the damage up and down the new jersey coastline, we want to show the president that personally, and i had an opportunity to see and discuss it at length, and
it to a cabinet-level agency. it got better. george w. bush demoted in to some sub agency within homeland security and look what happens to new orleans. we are seeing before our very eyes a stark difference between mitt romney saying we should privatize everything including fema and barack obama working with even republican governors like chris christie on a federal relief effort. that's a huge talisman for what you believe the proper role of government is in society and i believe this will show that the president's right and people look at this in ohio and swing states. >> not the only very stark difference between the two of them. the latest obviously being sandy and bringing the attention on romney and fema. he was asked yesterday multiple times what he would do with fema. did not answer. but just a short time ago jeb bush commented on local officials responding to disasters versus national or federal response. i'll play that but i want to play something else first. romney on the campaign trail today trying to transition, rachel, from holding off or holding fires to acknowledging the ongoing ev
around george w. bush who had been in the presidency just less than a year after winning a very hotly contested and contentious election. and the country coming together. and we're seeing that to a lesser extent right now play out on the east coast of new jersey and new york. >> thank you so much. i greatly appreciate -- go ahead, i'm sorry, keith, we're almost out of time, i'm sorry. >> i think it also shows the collapse of mitt romney's support mechanism in some ways. not that chris christie's abandoning him, but you also have bob mcdonnell of virginia who praised obama, said the fema response was incredibly quick. and also, you had gm and chrysler auto executives both coming out and condemning mitt romney. so the people who should naturally be supporting mitt romney in the last week of the campaign, they're actually supporting barack obama. and that's got to hurt. >> all right. thank you so much. i really appreciate y'all coming on. we'll see you in the next few days. thank you. >>> and developing news right now that we just referenced, janet napolitano is on the ground right now i
george bush's popularity, but it wasn't until katrina came along. and i think coalesce an argument that people were making which was that, you know, government had become sort of demonized by the bush white house and the republican congress and that we were seeing the potential effects of a government that couldn't respond in an emergency and that there was a substantive basis for that, for saying that we have to have a strong infrastructure. we have to be able to respond on a large scale quickly in a crisis. so i think to your point, yes. i think that is a fair argument to make right now. i think it's a little unfair that people are saying romney basically wants to abolish fema. there's a complicated debate that has a lot to do with sending responsibilities back to the states. i've heard people that romney basically wants to do away with fema. i don't think that's quite right. >> michael, there was a tweet yesterday that amused me from @lolgop who by the way everyone should follow. he's hysterical. he said for halloween and the five days that follow, the romney campaign is dressin
to george w bush. george bush was the incumbent president with you they say ohio under reports how the candidate is doing and there is plenty of room for mitt romney's ground game to put him over-the-top in ohio and get him to the 270 needed tuesday night. bill: back in the same part of virginia where they have been for the last couple of months. the president is giving his closing argument and using colin powell to do that. what is tkpwoef governor romney's closing argument? >> the intervention of hurricane sandy interrupted his driver reas much as he wanted to. it boils on you to bold, real change. mr. obama having been reelected wasn't able to keep many of the promises that he made. many of the policies that he put forth as a candidate didn't work as president. he has been emphasizing his bayh partisanship as governor of massachusetts trying to get swing voters in this race. we have ten battleground states that mitt romney plans to visit between now and tuesday night. he'll include in them pennsylvania and wisconsin, states that had been considered in the obama column that he no
it is -- it was very clear with george bush, he undervalued fema, to put it under homeland security, put brownie, great job brownie who was a horse guy, political appointee in this, this has been professionalized, pulled up, fema runs well because you have a president that believes in it. >> okay. >> jim? >> are you telling me that barack obama made -- before barack obama, fema sucked is that what you're telling me? >> i'm telling you. >> no, that's what you're saying. >> they cut the budget for it and president bush undervalued this operation and showed mitt romney -- i'm talking about mitt romney now saying he would not get rid -- >> have you watched the clips? >> you were there, you were up in new hampshire when it was happening. >> i was watching it. >> i watched the clip, peter, he didn't say that. >> he didn't say what i just read? >> the whole discussion was about downsizing government. he never said we should cut fema. he should we should take funds and -- >> you want to ask chris christie about that? >> sure. give him a call. >> look. >> come on, peter. >> my point on this, jim -- >> what is
romney and ryan in ohio next tuesday, as they did for george bush in 2004 and 2000, i think that romney could take that state. stuart: now, are the evangelicals voting positively for mitt romney? because they like mitt romney? or are they voting negatively against president obama? because they don't like president obama? >> well, the good news for romney is that it's a combination of both. romney has done outreach to them. and richard land of the southern baptist convention has endorsed him. did that yesterday. he met with billy graham about three weeks ago, graham is publicly supporting him. and i'm told that his selection of paul ryan was a huge plus, because ryan is a practicing catholic, very religious, the evangelicals, like paul ryan. on the negative side, they were, they noticed this battle that the catholic church got into with the obama administration over the obamacare requirement that they provide contraceptive services in their hospitals. the evangelicals have enormous amounts of outreach to people, and they-- to hospitals and such and they saw that this was going to affect
tonight in nate silver's calculations to 78.4%. and finally, george w. bush has entered the presidential campaign. he did that today when he was dragged into it by his little brother in florida. >> do you honestly think that this president is capable of bringing people together? his entire strategy is to blame others. starting with my brother, of course. basically, he blames every possible thing, rather than having the humility to be able to reach out and define common ground. >> and the fight over who is the real friend of the auto industry continued today. >> the facts, they speak for themselves. president obama took gm and chrysler into bankruptcy. taxpayers still stand to lose $25 billion from the president's politically managed bankruptcy. these companies, chrysler in particular, we know their story, are now choosing to expand manufacturing overseas. these are the facts. >> remember the president talked about romnesia? well, it's contagious. congressman ryan. congressman ryan's caught it. let me tell you the facts. congressman ryan voted with us. he voted in the congress with us. >>
've seen this before. in 2000, karl rove said, george w. bush was going to win california. they spent millions and millions of dollars on advertising there. they sent bush out there, precious time, near the end of the campaign. i said, tad devine, carter, those of us involved in that campaign, so we're not spending one dime in california, and gore won the state by 1.3 million votes. the wish can't become father to the reality, which is what's going on here. >> like a team trying to talk their way to a championship instead of playing the game, so to speak. shouldn't romney have florida wrapped up? >> he should. he has a lot of -- there, he has structural advantages because he's got the governor and virtually all the statewide officials. but i think the medicare, and the republicans like to say, oh, we've countered it with this lie about a $716 billion cut under obama care, when in fact there is no such cut. there's no cut in benefits. i think that seniors have figured out two things. one, romney wants to replace medicare with voucher care. they don't like it. but isn't it the latino an
by president george w. bush. carmona also served as sheriffs deputy along the u.s. border with mexico. democrats hope that bipartisan background can appeal to the independents, who make up a third of the state's voters. the candidate talks about republican efforts to recruit him while he served in as surgeon general. >> the republican party did ask me to become a republican. i said why? i was an independent my whole life, because i always thought that there were good sides-- both sides had good solutions to problems. unfortunately, we got so partisan now that democracy's in the gridlock, because nobody can agree on compromising. compromise becomes a four-letter word. >> reporter: and in the grand canyon state one issue and one hispanics make up 15% of arizona's registered voters, and a recent survey showed they favor carmona over flake by a six-to-one ratio. but in arizona, like elsewhere in the country, hispanics have not turned out to vote in the same numbers as other groups. if democrats can mobilize latinos in large enough numbers, they could win the election and that turns daniel
. >>> none of this surprises me. hurricanes have a well-known liberal bias. first katrina tainted george bush's presidency. then isaac wiped out the first day of the republican national convention. now hurricane sandy. sandy, what kind of name is that? are you a dude storm or a lady storm? oh, big surprise. just when obama needs a boost, who shows up but a gender-ambiguous weather system, a category 5 bi-hurricane. hey, don't get me wrong. i don't mind you being a meteorological event, but why must you be so flamboyant and in my face about it? no. i'm hurricane sandy. deal with me. >> oh, my gosh. up next, bill karins calls it the storm of a lifetime. for many living along the east coast as millions are still trying to recover from hurricane sandy. this week's "time" cover tackles the impact of the storm along with special election coverage. rick stengel is next to reveal the new issue.

has made progress and a vote for governor romney is a vote for president george w. bush's policies. >> governor romney has been using all his talents as a salesman to dress up these very same policies that failed our country so badly. the very same policies we have been cleaning up after for the past four years. >> the candidates continue to sprint to the. election officials are insuring americans can the next week even with power outages in the contest and key swing state of ohio. the secretary of state office tells fox business all polling place is currently have power for early voting and the state anticipates a smooth election day. dennis: rich edson. cheryl: on the topic of election day five days from the election ap has filed the catawba campaign donors. for president obama more than three million each from chicago media group founder and hedge fund manager and hollywood film producer. recognize mr. katzenberg. for governor romney the numbers are much higher led by sheldon adelson and $44 million followed by founder of conglomerate and head of huge real-estate empire. those a
? >> the changing demographics in columbus, obama won it convincingly in 2008, and george w. bush won it in 2004 with a strong showing in the southeast. it looks as if the romney forces have secured the base in the southeast and going up in the western part of the state and same for president obama in the northeast, and so it is a battle for the center part of the state and 19 counties that make up their part of the state and it is all about the ground game. gretchen, let me say real quick. in 1976, jimmie carter won ohio by 11,200 odd votes and less than one vote for precinct. in 2004 bush won 118,000 and we would have a president carry. that is how close it is right now. >> gretchen: that's how important one vote will be. thank you for your time. >> good to be with you, gretchen. >> gretchen: top lawmakers stepped up questions on who knew what on benghazi. judge napolitano on that next. massive chunk of atlantic city famed boardwalk simply washed away in the storm. we'll have that next.
